Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are the “new kids” of the music industry, so it’s no surprise that they weren’t able to partake in the 2013 Billboard Music Awards festivities inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena like everyone else.

Instead, the duo was relegated to the Wynn Las Vegas hotel down the street where they performed their hit single “Thrift Shop,” and also accepted their award right after when they won Best Rap Song, a category in which they beat out Kanye West, PSY and Flo Rida.

“First of all, we gotta thank Goodwill, we gotta thank Value City!” Macklemore said to laughs from the crowd, adding to the group’s fans, the Shark Face Gang, “Without you guys, we would not be on this stage right here … We love you and appreciate you.”
